Hello from the new Australian Children's Laureate for 2020–2021
My name is Ursula Dubosarsky. I’m a writer. I’ve written a lot of books for children and young adults.
The Australian Children’s Laureate is a person who is lucky enough to be chosen to travel around Australia – and even the world! – talking to children and adults about my favourite things on earth. Can you guess what?
BOOKS! I love READING books. I love WRITING books. And I also love every place where you find books, especially LIBRARIES.
So wherever I go as the Australian Children’s Laureate for the next two years, I am going to be talking about BOOKS, READING and LIBRARIES.
On this website, every month I’ll share a writing idea with you that I really enjoy and that I hope you will too.
You could keep a special book for this monthly writing – your very own Laureate Writing Book!
You can draw pictures to go with your writing, or make collages, or write other things you’ve thought of.
Then at the end of the year you’ll have a whole book of writing, all done by you!
